This 3 ingredients play dough is easy to make and will entertain your kiddos all afternoon. Made with ingredients found around the house, this DIY play dough is the easiest recipe around.
Can I be honest with you? I don’t like Play-doh. There I’ve said it! It’s not really the product I don’t like, but the smell that seems to linger on your hands and any surface it comes in contact with. Because of this I prefer to make homemade play dough instead of using store bought. Don’t worry, I haven’t deprived my son of this classic playtime fun!
We made some homemade play dough this weekend and like most kids my little guy loves anything that is hands on. This recipe only takes about 5 minutes to make and can be stored in an air tight container.
How to make 3 ingredient play dough
- Mix in about 1 cup conditioner and 2 cup cornstarch. You will need to play around with the mixture until it is dough consistency.
- Next add in a squirt of finger paint for color.
- Kneed until all ingredients are mixed well.
This mix definitely smells better than real play-doh and will leave your hands feeling soft. Althought this DIY play dough can be saved, I typically throw it away and make fresh. Mainly because my son is a hoarder and if I save one craft then I have to save them all.
